Speedbit crosses 300 million installs

Customize font size:

Speedbit, the pioneer of video streaming and data download acceleration over the Web, and the creator of the most popular download manager -Download Accelerator Plus (DAP), today announces its popular applications have reached a new popularity milestone - three hundred million (300,000,000) installs to date, all through word of mouth.
Speedbit is thus joining a very respectable group of very few publishers that have reached global popularity of great magnitude such as Skype.

As bandwidth grows, the need for tools that allow consumers to effectively use such bandwidth is ever so high.

Having an acceleration engine on a device (computer, mobile device) is the only way to make sure data flow to the device will be truly effective. Without an acceleration engine, one will hardly ever make a true full use of the bandwidth at hand especially when connected to a super-fast / fiber connection. Research has shown that:

  • A user with a 10mbps connection effectively gets on average only 1.6 mbps of bandwidth – effective bandwidth of just 16%... *
  • Upgrading from a 5mbps connection to a 10mbps will end up in 5% improvement (instead of the anticipated 100% improvement) *
  • Adding more bandwidth is hitting the law of diminishing returns – without an acceleration engine a user, in real life conditions, will hardly ever enjoy speeds above 20mbps even if his connection shows a 100 mbps on a speed test...
  • Testing for speed on speed test sites shows the true potential speed of the connection, but NOT the real life speed. The reason is that speed tests use multi thread to accelerate the data delivery during the test. Speedbit lets you use multi thread technology ALL THE TIME, not just during the test – so your real life speed with Speedbit will be as high as the speed you get when running speed tests.

Join the speed revolution, and really enjoy the bandwidth you are paying for to the max.

"I am very excited to see Speedbit reaching such a huge popularity" said Idan Feigenbaum, Speedbit founder and CTO, "I remember the days when I coded the first version of DAP in my parents garage, I tried to solve my own download speed pains and I ended up helping out many millions around the world who share the same pains - this is a truly great feeling".

"This is a great achievement by a great team who share a vision and a passion to lift the barriers that prevent everyone from really getting the speed and performance they are paying for" said Ariel Yarnitsky, Speedbit CEO "such barriers are getting bigger when going mobile and we are determined to lift those speed barriers for mobile users around the world".

Accelerate your downloads on the web with Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) - the most popular download manager and accelerator. DAP organizes your downloads and kicks in seamlessly when you attempt to download a file. It will then use its dynamic acceleration engine to download the very same file using multi channels, from the original source as well as other publicly available sources (if such exist) to make the best possible use of the bandwidth available to you for the fastest possible download time. DAP has many more features to help you with your downloads, be it an application, data, video or anything else you want to download.

Enjoy higher quality web videos and stop video buffering with Speedbit Video Accelerator – Speedbit's patented acceleration for web video streaming technology speeds up the data streaming rate by using multi dynamic streams that make optimal use of the available bandwidth. As a result of the superior streaming speeds, the video quality on many video sites will adapt and become higher. In addition, due to the higher streaming speeds, buffering stops will be eliminated letting you watch videos smoothly. Premium users also enjoy iTunes download acceleration.
